Lately, I've been spending more time outside than I used to. I've been receiving so much inspiration simply by soaking up all of the sights & sounds that surround me. There's so much beauty everywhere- it's just up to us to notice ✨

My art journal and a canvas I’m working on.
It shows the different processes: my art journal is full of faces while my canvases lately are mainly abstract. I’ve been thinking of bringing them together lately, so maybe there’s some inspiration if they spend the night together. 💋🔥✨😂
You’ve been wanting to make a change & take a leap - to join this incredible community @bycacademy of support, learning and growth. 🌺
You want to create a business (or augment your current biz) that feels right for you, one where you can help others and feel like you’re making a difference.
The intake for the May course is close to selling out. If you’re curious and want to chat about what it’s really like to study with @bycacademy and what it’s really like after graduation — read my post in the link above (I offer a pretty cool bonus if you enrol via my link - a whole coaching series with me which counts towards you becoming Certified!).
I know it can be a big decision, so why not drop me a line! I have spaces available in the coming days where you can jump on a Skype call with me and ask me anything about this amazing course! (PS. It’s way more than just a course of study...it will actually change your life!) And...if you happen to be a creative or Mum or both (like me!) then I can share some perspective on that combo with you too! 🌺🌺🌺

You can try to control things as much as humanly possible. But you will suffer for it. Suffering lately? Let the hell go! As a mildly obsessive controller of things like my diet and my exercise routines (pretty much the only thing in life I have been able to successfully control) oh do I know the pain of not getting go. I have allowed stress and anxiety to undo the benefits from time to time.
Not this month...!
The universe is schooling me hard in Argentina. As a vegetarian, gluten-, dairy- and sugar-free eater, I’ve had to put my diet on hold for now.
My daily work schedule has gone out the window as extreme humidity prevents brain functioning during the afternoon and all the fun stuff happens late at night (dinner invitations starting at 10pm?!!). So my sleep and work patterns have shifted to accommodate.
And guess what? Even though my sinuses are all blocked up from my new cheese empanada habit, I’m happier than I have been in a while. Yes the sun, the adventures and spending time with my man has helped. But so has letting go of everything I thought I ‘needed’ and discovering that I can find my energy from joy, inspiration and relaxation.
My business is still going strong. Yes I have zits from eating too many treats but I’m just enjoying my ability to let go of a lot of the small things and focus on enjoying the big things.
We can read every personal development book on the planet but the real lessons come when we loosen our grip on what we think we know and say yes to the adventure when it calls. These are the sweetest lessons.
What are you being called to let go of so you can see things differently?

A powerful reminder on a shopping center wall! This continues to be an area of growth for me, but it gets better each time I release a creation out into the world. What would you create if you couldn't be wrong or afraid to fail?
Fun Facts I love 💕 to learn about. Whether it’s #blackhistorymonth or a normal Tuesday afternoon learning something new has always brought joy to my day. Today I learned about ✨MARIE VAN BRITTAN BROWN✨ a nurse 👩🏽⚕️ whom with her electrician husband created the FIRST #homesecurity & monitoring system. If they can be creative what’s stopping you from presenting a #moneymaking idea 💡 today?

So unbelievably true! So why not make it a masterpiece? ✨ Why not shine brighter than you ever have before? ✨
Here’s a lesson for Business Owners, Managers & Leaders!
When you’re difficult or demanding, your positive qualities are often overlooked, disregarded or forgotten.

Today's food for thought: "Mind-wandering is an excellent predictor of people's happiness. In fact, how often our minds leave the present and where they tend to go is a better predictor of our happiness than the activities in which we are engaged." —Matthew Killingsworth, Ph.D.
The critic is a true gatecrasher, so next time it shows up uninvited - try accepting its presence rather than wasting energy on trying to get rid of it. Give the gatecrasher a job at the party, like hanging up coats or pouring drinks. Love this piece from @austinkleon
My progress for today. 🔥Something wild is going on.💃🏼
I don’t quite feel like it is done, but for today I it needed to dry and I needed some distance. Plus, it‘s really cold in the studio right cause there‘s just a coal oven to heat so I needed to warm up.❄️👐🏻🔥
Putting some major loving hours into this website for you! 💕 I want it to feel like home for all you beautiful souls...

It so isn't! Ignore OPR's (other people's rules). Creativity has no rules, no time requirements and no pressure.⠀
Take your time. Do it your way. Let it flow.
Just starting on new piece in the studio. As always, I‘m excited were it will take me and story it has to tell. I‘ll keep you posted. 😄🎨🖌✨

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a colorful day.
I’ve got a wonderful feeling,
Everything’s going my way!
I’m heading to Palm Beach this week for the NewLife Expo. Exhibiting and doing two presentations.
Special thanks to my nieces Krista and Becca for assembling 100 packets for the popular “These Ain’t Your Mamas Mandalas” - where I lead the audience in drawing and interpreting their own mandalas.🌀

I took some time this weekend to do one of the items on my long "if I have time" list. 📃
I'm primarily a performing artist and have found anything musical to come easily to me. 🎼
However, visual art is another story altogether!😂 As I was watercoloring with my friend Mary, we were talking about how beautiful the colors blend when you don't try to be so precise, you allow the lines to blur, run, & bleed.🎨 The same can be said about life. When you are holding on so tightly, you miss the opportunity for flow. 🌊You miss the chance for it to turn out BETTER than you can imagine. ✨
So my question for you is... how can you let go a little more today? 💆🏻

Two of my clients informed me last evening (the upside to working on a Sunday🤷🏻♀️🙄😌) that they have been following my “poha” recipe and that it has positively impacted their creativity and productivity❤️✍️ It’s such a simple, one-dish #glutenfree & vegan meal to make. This article (with recipe & benefits) was published in the summer of 2017; excited to see that it has been shared 4.6K times since then🙏🏼 @curejoy@ayurveda_curejoy .

Tonight I was texting with a dear friend about feeling tired and under time pressure but showing up for my stuff anyway. He said, "You got this," and sent me these two images with the caption: "Watch out, world." When asked where he found these images, he said he googled "moon goddess." 🌙 Yeah, he gets me. And we all need that. Who gets you? Tag 'em below 💕🙏

It’s finally here! I’m really excited to finally be sharing this. The link above will bring you to a webinar that will bring you to free webinar that shows how a lot of people were able to quit their jobs and live on their own terms.
This isn’t for everyone and it may not be for you especially if you like your job and you’re happy with 9 to 5 lifestyle (which is fine). But if you don’t like your job and you feel like you’re wasting your life away. I’m here to tell you that there are other ways to make a living.
This system that you’ll learn about in the webinar has set a lot of people of all types free from their jobs and every aspect of their lives has improved drastically.
It works and the only factor that would determine your success in it is you. If you put in the work and do the learning you’ll be able to achieve a life truly on your own terms.
The webinar is about an hour and half and totally free so you have nothing to lose signing up but so much to gain and learn even if don’t become a part of the community of people who are using the system to change their lives.
If you’ve been following me you know it’s my passion to motivate and inspire people. I’m excited to share this because it is something to work hard at and create a life you is truly on your own terms.
Have a good night 🙂. And here's the link again . http://michaeljunderwood.com

Conversations about creativity, parenthood, and wellbeing are just about my favorite thing. Add locally-grown lavender tea at a new-to-me place, and my weekend is complete. Wishing you a week of lovely and refreshing connections...
(Thanks, Aletha, I really enjoyed our chat today! It was great to catch up and to meet your sweet daughter! @alethanotahipster )

Sometimes the lesson is that you cannot “make it work” and instead... it is time to let go. •
It does not mean you have failed in some way. It can mean that you are accepting the reality of what is front of you instead of what you wish it could be.
'Uniquely You' - the creative soul of your business. The guiding light that keeps you on purpose, clear, focused and free to be you.⠀
It will be your guide to help you create content that educates, engages and entertains your audience. It will help you tap into your innate creativity to build your business and brand. And if you share your true 'Uniquely You' identity with honesty and authenticity, it will ultimately lead you to your customers. The people who want to follow you, buy from you, work with you.
"Luxury of Space"
"Creative living requires the luxury of space for ourselves, even if all we manage to carve out is one special bookshelf and a windowsill thatvis ours." #TheArtistsWay
